All these Capital Bikeshare expansions are getting confusing. BeyondDC discussed expansion earlier this week, but that post is already obsolete since DDOT’s Wednesday announcement that it is funding 50 new stations in addition to the 30-some already under way.
Let’s take this opportunity to record the history and near future of expansion, in a nice clear table.
I’ll try to update this list whenever new information becomes available, and will add a link to it in the “Features” menu on the BeyondDC home page (left side of the screen) so it always easy to find.
|Arlington – Crystal City||14||Sept 2010|
|DC||100||Sept 2010 – Feb 2011|
|Arlington – Rosslyn||4||April 2011|
|Funded Future Expansions|
|DC – first expansion||34*||Fall 2011||Link|
|Arlington – Rosslyn-Ballston corridor||33*||Late 2011||Link|
|DC – second expansion||50||Early 2012||Link|
|Total Funded System|
* The DC and Arlington 2011 expansions have generally been reported as being “around 25 and 30 stations” respectively. I came up with 34 and 33 stations by counting the proposed locations shown on the linked maps.
** Apparently Alexandria’s participation is still somewhat up in the air. They have tentatively funded 6 stations, but may still move the funding elsewhere.
